Once upon a time, Alex (waffletronand Kristina (modacephalopodamet at their local comic book shop’s Friday night Pokémon TCG League.

After that fateful first encounter, many late-night conversations on MySpace and instant messengers were spent talking about comics and cats, science and cephalopods, games and bad jokes. They talked into the wee hours of the morning because they both have sleeping problems thanks to the Internet.

Alex asked for Kristina’s hand in girlfriend-dom on June 15th, 2009 and 4 years later, they got married.

This is our wedding stationery (made by me, modacephalopoda). The “Save the Date” was a magnet and the rest of the items (Invitation, Program, and Thank You card) were the small comics.

When did doing something ‘like a girl’ become an insult?

Watch the full Always commercial that seeks to answer this question.

The part that gets me is at the end of the commercial, when they ask one of the first ladies if she had a chance to do her demonstration of “running like a girl” over again, what would she do differently and she says, “I would run like myself.” I legit cried.

I HAD MANY ALIEN ABDUCTION EXPERIENCES AS A CHILD. I WOULD WAKE UP, FROZEN WITH FEAR, UNABLE TO TALK OR MOVE BUT STRICKEN WITH AN ANIMALISTIC PANIC. THERE WOULD BE THINGS WATCHING ME FROM JUST OUTSIDE OF MY VISION, PROJECTING INTO MY MIND. WHEN THEY HAD GOTTEN ME THAT FAR, THEY WOULD BEGIN TO LEVITATE ME OUT OF THE HOUSE. LATER - I SAW A TRIANGULAR UFO BY THE BAY BRIDGE, IT WAS ENORMOUS & JUST FLOATING THERE. LATER - I SAW A SERIES OF FLASHING LIGHTS OVER THE SAN FRANCISCO HILLS HIGH IN THE CLOUDS THAT LASTED FOR OVER AN HOUR. THEY WERE COMMUNICATING. UFOS ARE REAL. AT THE PORK SHOP.
